Uncover the staples and secrets of Hungarian cuisine in a way you couldn’t do alone with this market tour and private Hungarian home cooking class in Budapest.

Finally, savor your creations as you hear about Hungarian food and customs—insight you’d otherwise miss.
What to Expect
Imagine strolling through a Hungarian market, picking up the perfect ingredients for a delicious Hungarian meal with the help of an expert on Hungarian food, and then cooking all of that seasonal fresh produce in a private home kitchen.
